yemyourface This was a really fun show. Carini opener brought an immediate energy into the Garden which remained consistently throughout the night. Each song played fit just right. The Fluffhead -> Reba segment was truly a bundle full of joy and sweet release early in on in the game. This whole first set encapsulates Phish at its heart and soul.
Set two Possum kickoff gets everyone on their toes. Fuego->Jibboo opens up the floor in fashion and displays the light hearted flush of ticklish riffs and grooves letting everyone boogie down and feel good about it. Golgi is the classic Phish always welcome and celebratory, continuing the theme of the night. What’s the Use has a way of captivating the audiences attention in this subtle way that just erupts in everyone’s face and showers everyone in lightness before kicking it into hyperdrive, launching the Garden deep into the depths of space with a raucous YEM.
Soul Planet opens up set three and it’s game on once again with a full on dance party done right. The band was flowing with so much energy at this point it felt as though the music was all just gracefully unwinding, pouring out with love and gratitude and happiness. ASIHTOS was the deep space cannonball of the night and erupted in constellatory psychedelia. The descent from the peak of this massive journey is again back to the heart and soul of Phish with emotionally felt renditions of each song played and a particularly tasteful tease of Auld Lang Syne in Moma Dance. Caspian>Wading>First Tube are lumps of space gravy, and Loving Cup is the cover on the whole enchilada until next time. What a beautiful buzz.
